Villa Savoye, Poissy

(220+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
Designed by famed Swiss architects Le Corbusier and his cousin, Pierre Jeanneret, Villa Savoye represents a modern architectural masterpiece open to the public. The Savoye family commissioned the house as a country retreat in 1928, and it was finished in the early 1930s. The home became Corbusier's best-known building from the era, as it exerted an enormous influence on the international modernism architectural movement through its design. During World War II, Nazis sent the family to a concentration camp and used the house for storage. After the war, the French government took ownership; it was designated a historical monument in 1965.

  • really the actual sensory experience of the building far outstrips all photos or drawings which one may have seen. It is relatively close to Paris and very much worthwhile. Not vi no exposure, but the building itself only does not need anything else to not stop being a jewel

  • The facilities of the University of Versailles, located in the suburb of Paris Ile de France (Il-de-France) small 1 city Poissy Poissy was abroad. The daily commuters from nearby la défense (new Arc de Triomphe), went in front of the Villa Savoye in Poissy station via. 3/2015 visited a short-term study abroad destination while you're in Paris after a long time, on the way back to the Villa Savoye came after a long time. Paris suburban fast train RER A5 line (Ile de la Cité, Opera, Champs Elysee, La Défense station accessible by bus from) to ride and reach the destination Poissy in 30 minutes from La Défense. Different terminal on the A5 line trains, along the way at the station where is divided. It is very wrong. Always ride to Poissy. Head of the lead vehicle in the destination. You will see the big Citroën in the middle of the Poissy plant. Ride along with the Citroën workers early in the morning hours. For relatively good security district late at night in is less disturbing than through a Muslim residential area than riding the RER lines. However, pickpockets, so watch out. Get off at Poissy station and close to bus stop and bus ticket office. Bus ticket office is small, so may be a little confusing. Take bus 2 B. Sell ride if you forget, buy the ticket, put your destination clearly. Fare advance for the sure ticket to immediately purchase. Sometimes suddenly the bus company staff.

  • Do it is a very nice architecture. It is well preserved, but lack a little in seine. It pays and hospitality is just there to cash in and the person who sells books and other goodies is less friendly when you are a group!

  • A great place to visit for architecture fans, which worth the effort for a detour in the outskirts of Paris. Morning visit would be recommended to avoid the tourist flow. The house was reconstructed a few decades ago, but according to the original plans of Le Corbusier.
  • Worth the trip, but make sure to take the bus up the hill!
  • This is a start point in the world's modern architecture and house building !
  • Interesting place
  • Part of the French pilgrimage for all architects. This building represented Corbusier's 5 point manifesto. Easily among the top 5 buildings of the twentieth century in terms of influence to this day.
